slo mEN FIRST XV MAKE SMALL WORK OF
KERN COUNTY TUSKERS 38-15 IN THE FIRST GAME OF PRESEASON
SLO Men won their first game of the preseason on November 16, at Cal Poly. It came with a great fury of spectacular runs by the backline. The doors flung open after the first 10 minutes of the match, and they never looked back. Lief McKay scored his first try of the season as well as kicking 7 points for the day. Centers Kane Jenkins ran in two tries in the first half, and Marcus Hall made his way around the end for a quick 5 points. Fullback Nic Roldan also fired in a for a quick score in the first 20 min amongst a flurry of tries.
It was a good sign of things to come for this year's men's squad.
GOOD LUCK AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK SLO MEN FIRST XV
BELMONT SHORE Gazelles and UCLA Crowned 2013 Tri-Tip SEVENS Champions
The rugby was fast, the air was hot, and the beer was cold. The 2013 edition of the Tri-Tip 7s is in the books - after almost 100 games played over 4 fields, the Gazelles from Belmont Shore took the Cup Championship, and UCLA went undefeated to claim the women’s crown.
35 men’s teams and 8 women’s teams rounded out a record number of entries. We were especially honored to host the Mexico National Women’s 7’s team, in another first for the tournament.
The Eureka beer garden was as popular as ever as the Mother Cornshuckers Beergrass Band entertained the crowd, and the tri-tip barbecue dinner surpassed expectations.
